Whatsapp Native App for Windows Available for All

WhatsApp has good news for those who use it regularly on their PC. A native Windows app is now available, allowing you to easily send and receive messages without any hassle. And a native WhatsApp macOS app is also in the works. Here are the details. 

WhatsApp Launched New Windows Native App

The new WhatsApp for Windows app, now out of beta, is now available for everyone to download through the Microsoft Store. This application has been specially designed for Windows and  will therefore be much faster and more reliable than the desktop version of WhatsApp. Furthermore, it is said to have a cleaner interface. 

This will also eliminate the need to tie up your phone every time you want to access WhatsApp on your PC. So far, using WhatsApp Desktop or browser-based WhatsApp Web are the only options for accessing your WhatsApp messages. 

Now, once you have downloaded the Windows app for WhatsApp, you will need to link your primary WhatsApp device once by scanning a QR code, an option found in linked devices in the settings. Post this, you will be able to send and receive WhatsApp messages even when your smartphone is offline. Of course, chats will be end-to-end encrypted.

Whatsapp Native Windows App is now available to download on Microsoft Store

WhatsApp for macOS is also coming soon and is currently in development. If  interested, you can try it out as part of WhatsApp's beta program. The public beta of the Catalyst-based WhatsApp macOS app was released last month. 

These updates are an extension of WhatsApp's multi-device support. This allows you to link up to 4 devices to a single WhatsApp account without  internet or  phone. The messaging platform also plans to add support for tablets or secondary phones as a device option, but it remains to be seen when that will happen.
